Fight Like a Girl

Cece, Nana and I went to NYC to participate in the 2018 Women's March. Last year we stuck to Hartford, which was a great experience but it was more of a rally than a march. Sometimes I girl just needs to spread her wings. Needless to say, the day was a huge success. This was Cece's first trip to the city. The crowd was big, everyone was friendly and courteous, Mother Nature participated, giving us sunshine and near 50 degree temperatures, and of course, Cece was a stand out. At 5, she's just starting to recognize what the fuss is all about. I talk with her about why we march, and ask her questions to judge her level of understanding. We are getting there. She loves to tell people about the march and I still find her singing to herself, "hey, hey, ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go." LOL. You go, girl.

She's very proud of her signs. I am very proud of her.

Yeah, Blogging is Hard

Turns out, life just gets busier. I'm under no illusion that I am actually prepared to start blogging again, or keep this space even moderately updated. If you want a peek into our daily lives, Instagram is the best way to keep up with us. Blogging is just too time intensive for this working mom.

Hopefully I won't abandon this space all together, and make time for updates here and there. The kids are now 3 and (almost) 5. It's been a fun, busy year. One highlight was our two week family vacation through Utah, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. We rented a RV and went with my parents and my brother's family. The trip included a family reunion in Utah, Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and countless other scenic adventures. It really was pretty special. No time for more written details, but the pictures speak for themselves anyway.
